Caution you may need to hold the fuck onto something, this may blow your mind. Well maybe not, you’ll probably go back to drinking the mainstream Kool-Aid but read it anyway. This is a condensed version of why no matter who you vote for, we are all still fucked. This is going to be some deep shit so i’m of course writing this in my smoking jacket as I listen to NPR.
I would say our forefathers were turning over in their graves but I’d probably be wrong because our current political system is just the modern day equivalent of what they had in mind in 1776. Further, the US Constitution spells out our demise in it’s preamble (and by “our” I mean the middle class of this country who carry the brunt of this countries financial burden).
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
~ The United States Constitution
The two statements of our demise are “domestic Tranquility” and “the general Welfare“.
First, i’ll address “domestic Tranquility”. As a nation we’re so tranquil that we are literally all asleep. We have our heads stuck so far up our own first world asses that we can’t see the forest for the trees. THE RICH RUN THIS COUNTRY. And by rich I don’t mean the douche bag parked in the handicap spot at Startbucks, talking on his cell phone, in his Porsche. I mean the top 1%. The guy who owns the Porsche factory and the infrastructure that keeps that douche bag’s cell phone connected. The people who are behind the lobbyist, who in turn control the law makers, who ultimately control how our lives are run.
When the Constitution says “the general Welfare“ it’s not referring to you and I. It’s referring to “the general welfare” of the top 1% using “domestic tranquility” to neuter the rest of us.
Do you understand that every phone call, every text message, and the locations of where and when you made said communication is recorded by “our” government. This isn’t conspiracy theory, this is an actual fact. We are being herded like lambs to slaughter. This isn’t “our” government it’s “theres”, and the sooner we all realize that the sooner we can begin taking steps to fix the problem. Our politicians are all wealthy and are in the pockets of the mega rich. No one ever ask why our law makers give state and federal tax dollars known as subsidies (a welfare check to an already rich corporation that we the people pay for) to the private sector to help them build stadiums and other privately held real estate. No one ask why the top 10% of our population owns almost 50% of the wealth in our country.
The answer…….. Because the system is designed that way.
Right out of college My fiancé worked for Senator Bill Nelson as one of the people who answers the letters his office received. These letters were from Florida residents who believed writing a letter to their Senator would make an impact on whatever concern they had within their community. She made $12 an hour to send back constituents rubber stamped responses saying that Senator Nelson understands and appreciates their concerns. When in reality the staff was told that the only things these letters from the constituents were good for was to identify hot topics and talking points for the Senator’s next campaign. My point being that these politicians don’t have our best interest at heart. They care about there own elitist agendas and the agendas of their financial supporters.
So, since most of us are not putting hundreds of thousands of dollars in the pockets of our elected officials, we have no voice. I’m sure I’ll get several comments to the contrary, but I guess some people just don’t like the truth. Most people are sheep and won’t run for freedom even when the gate of the pin is wide open. They’d rather live in the false security of the herd, massing close together with the knowledge that one day the slaughter will come. They find security in the herd because they hope that there are so many other sheep huddled in close with them that their odds of being picked for the slaughter are slim. That’s why they try to pull you back into the herd with them.
Open your minds and stop looking at us as a divided people. The ignorance of not being able to find common ground with a person in similar financial circumstances because of race, gender, or whatever other distracting reason is just dumb. Whether, black, white, red, brown, Republican, Democrat, distraction, distraction, distraction………… We are all one united people and they are laughing at us. Albeit rightfully so.
America is for Sale. No, the reality is America was Sold A Long Time Ago.
